Study at AVA!
Welcome to the Web site for the Amazon Valley Academy! We offer an accredited American-style Christian education for students from Pre-school through grade 12. Courses for the area population in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) are offered with native English speaking teachers.
Founded in 1958, and at its present location since 1962, AVA is among the oldest and best international schools in Brazil. The school is on an 18 acre campus with separate buildings for pre-school - 6, the high school, the multi-media, gymnasium, and snack bar.
AVA was founded and operated for more than 40 years as a boarding school for the children of missionaries in the Amazon Valley. Today it is operated as an international school by the Network of International Christian Schools (NICS) with a few non area students living with sponsoring families.
Enrollment at AVA is open to any student who meets our entrance requirements, regardless of race, religion, or nationality. Student may enroll at any grade level: Pre-school through Grade 12. The curriculum for the Pre-school through grade 6 is a basic education with Christian values. The secondary curriculum is primarily college preparatory and the language of instruction is English. More than 90% of its graduates go on to colleges and universities around the world.
AVA has a great English-speaking faculty and the student/teacher ratio is very low.
